North/South California 365 Porsche Club Get Together
Driving though the foothills of the central California coast on a road where I almost never see another vehicle, I crested a hill and ran into the middle of about 50 of the nicest, well kept vintage Porsches I have ever seen. Usually, I drive looking for wildlife to shoot in the fields near the road or birds that sit on the fences, but this was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up. When life gives you lemons,…
The light was fairly harsh, but with a little post production tweaking, I think the images came out nice. We talked for a few minutes before the group got back into their cars and began driving down the road. I stayed and tried to shoot each car as it went by.
While talking to them, I learned that they were going to have a concourse de elegance in Morro Bay the next day. I went and got some more shots there.
The image above was taken with a Nikon D300 and a Nkkor 18-70 3.5-4.5 lens at 70mm. The exposure was 1/200 of a second at f11 and an ISO of 200.

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to fly over Hearst Castle with a life long friend who passed away earlier this year. This is one of the shots I got on that flight. Looking at it reminds me of him.
The image was taken with a D300 and a Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 lens at 90mm. The exposure was 1/320 of a second at f9 and an ISO of 1000.

Here are the photography blog posts and sites that I found this week that I think you as a photographer should read. Not all of them are always related to photography, but they are worth looking at and will probably make you think.
The Turning Gate Cart CE – This looks like a good shopping cart for photographers that integrates with Lightroom.
iPads in Your Classroom – I’m a teacher, so once in a while I checkout places other than photography sites. This one is VERY interesting and demonstrates the possible future of education.
Remote Control Chopper Follows Wakeboarder – In an example of what technology might bring to photography, this “helicopter” follows a wakeboarder, keeping the camera pointed at him as he plays.
Google Yourself – A good way of finding out what is being said about you and possibly finding infringements on your images.
Turn Your Deck into A Wildlife Oasis – From the National Wildlife Federation
Basic Digital Photography – Like it says, information on the basics of digital photography.
Alpha Mount World – Lots of reviews and information on digital cameras.
NatureScapes.net – The resource for nature photographers. I love this site. It has information, a great store, and more.
Anne McKinnell Photography – A good photographer from Victoria B.C., Canada who is taking a road trip for the next year. She has a good eye and is entertaining to read.
National Park Service – Ok, I’ll be honest. If you’re planning a trip to any national park, this should be your first stop. It may be your last. It has TONS of information about all of the parks and monuments.
